Enhanced Threat and Risk Assessment: Local Jurisdiction (MGT 315)

August 16-17, 2012

This course, funded by the National Training and Education Division (NTED) within DHS/FEMA’s National Preparedness Directorate, enhances the basic Threat and Risk Assessment course (MGT-310) by teaching participants how to apply all phases of the DHS/FEMA risk management process to jurisdictional critical infrastructure and key resources. Through lectures, discussions and classroom activities, participants learn methods to identify and prioritize risks from all hazards; assess vulnerabilities, estimate consequences, and use equipment, training and exercises to mitigate risk. Multidisciplinary participant teams visit and assess facilities selected by the host jurisdiction, determining risks, vulnerabilities, consequences and mitigation options specific to their assigned site. Teams then document their findings using a software assessment tool, develop an action plan, and present their results to the class. Subject matter experts from the National Emergency Response and Rescue Training Center will conduct the program.

Prerequisite

Participants should work in one of the listed disciplines. It is recommended that participants complete either the TEEX online WMD Terrorism Incident Awareness (AWR-160) or TEEXs Threat and Risk Assessment course (MGT-310). Participants should be approved by the host jurisdiction prior to attending. The DHS/FEMA NTED course AWR-160 is offered online by TEEX.
